Christmas Message 2013: He Came From Heaven To Earth (John 16:28-33). What did it mean for Jesus to come into the world that first Christmas? The King of kings and the Lord of lords gave up his position and place in glory to come and be born in a dirty, stinky animal feeding trough and to end up crucified upon a dirty, wooden cross. The God of the universe in the flesh.... born in a borrowed stable and buried in a borrowed tomb. Would you have done it? Ps. Johnny shows from Jesus' words how the Christ was no ordinary man - He came forth from the Father in heaven (the God of eternity), He came into this world (stepped into time with His creation and achieved what He set out to do within a span of three decades), and He then left the world and returned to the Father (rose from the dead and is now seated at the right hand of the Father having thus demonstrated His amazing love to this world). This Christmas, come to the stable once again and see the Baby who vacated His throne in heaven. But don't stop there! Go to the cross and see Jesus taking our sins in His body. Then come and see the empty tomb, then fix your eyes on Jesus who is enthroned in heaven and one day will come again!
